BUD: The World Series.

LOU: Don't you see? The Nats are so concerned with making sure Strasburg stays healthy they've forgotten why they need him healthy.

BUD: Not exactly. There is no way to make sure that Strasburg stays healthy. He could sit out the postseason, then blow out his elbow again on the first day of spring training, for all we know.

LOU: Excuse me. (Takes off his Nationals cap, puts it over his face and screams into it, then begins to bang his head repeatedly against the wall)

BUD: You seem upset. Maybe we should stop talking about this. Let's just turn on the TV and watch the ball game. Look, Washington already has runners at the corners. Bryce Harper's on third.

LOU: O.K. (Calming down) Who's on first?
